Book Summary of Fault Lines by Voddie T. Baucham, Jr.


Evangelicals are being divided by the issues of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Critical Social Justice. “There are groups and ministries that have embraced CRT, and those are problematic. But there is a larger group that is sympathetic to it because of their desire to fight what they see as a problem of racial injustice.” (p. 3)

This second group is particularly troubling. While claiming to be fully committed to the sufficiency and authority of the Bible, many groups and ministries have actually embraced parts of the CRT worldview that are entirely incompatible with Scripture. 

“The goal of this book is not to avoid the looming trouble. In fact, I believe that to be neither possible nor desirable. The trouble has arrived. It will not go away any time soon, and the division it is causing is necessary.” (p. 6)

This division can be thought of as a fault line dividing two worldviews. On one side are those who take the position of Critical Social Justice. On the other side are those who take the position of biblical justice. “I am not writing this book to stop the divide. I am writing to clearly identify the two sides of the fault line and to urge the reader to choose wisely.” (p. 7)
